OK, I apologize for speaking a bit out of hand. It's just that I have seen
LOB doing very well in our games. When they get the added bonuses from
winning the VP's the FF + duo-doomthingies is really nasty. And being able
to use CC to stop damage is really good for a titan based model. To give
them FF as well just seems to be overpowering to me. They could wreck a lot
of havok and effectively take away their disadvantage without disrupting
their advantages.

As long as the people who plauy with it say it's OK then that's fine as they
are the most important people to have agree to it.
